Why is it "nous partirons à la chasse aux friandises rather than "des friandaise"?

Hi Ann,

It is because the expression is -  'la chasse à quelque chose'

so you can have:

Une chasse à l'homme = a man hunt

La chasse à l'ours = bear hunt

La chasse au trésor = treasure hunt

La chasse aux oeufs Easter egg hunt

etc...

Hope this helps!
